iPhone v2

Ok: so we know that, despite the hype, iPhone v1 is missing a myriad features which simply belong to a state-of-the-art cell phone:

  • Songs as Ringtones
  • Any flash support
  • Instant Messaging
  • Picture messages (MMS)
  • Video recording
  • Voice recognition or voice dialing
  • Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Streaming (A2DP)
  • One-size-fits-all headset jack
  • 3G (EV-DO/HSDPA)
  • GPS
  • A real keyboard
  • Removable battery
  • Expandable Storage

It IS sexy, indeed, but for at least 4 of the above-mentioned “omissions” I wouldn’t consider purchasing one..

As Steve Jobs is said to be introducing V2 next Monday, what can we hope for?

See-Through iPhone

iPhone Pro

iPhone Pico

iPhone Air

Or maybe even my favorite:

iPhone Shuffle

We are waiting with bated breath! ;-)

Congratulations, George Brownridge!

I must admit: I would probably sport a similar smirk on my face if such an ad was published in my honour:


Seems pretty pleased with himself, eh?


Received the following mail from a German colleague today:

Hallo Mark,

da ***** in Urlaub ist, leite ich das Mail an dich weiter. Ich bin jetzt nur nicht mehr sicher, ob du es in Deutsch verstehst. Falls nicht, laß es mich wissen, dann übersetze ich es.

In English:

Hi Mark,

as ***** is on holiday, I’m forwarding you this mail. I’m not too sure if you understand it in German. If that’s not the case, let me know and I’ll translate it for you.

Errm: so if I don’t understand what you wrote, I should inform you, right?

As I said: a perfect Catch-22! :-)

Good Luck, Kiddies!

I happen to know of at least 38 kids who hardly slept a wink last night and went off to school, this morning, with a mammoth knot in their stomach; and one of them just happens to be our eldest… ;-)

Oh: the joy of end-of-term end-of-school exams!

Good luck, Mouse: I can hardly believe that, after this ultimate hurdle, you will potentially never visit a school again!
